Ignore These Vehicle Repairs and You May Get Pulled Over



Many drivers may feel that they don't have the time or money to address vehicle repairs immediately, but beware that ignoring some repairs can get you pulled over and even ticketed, says the Car Care Council.



"Ignoring certain vehicle repairs may seem to save money in the short term but can lead to extra costs, such as fines or 'fix-it' tickets, if these problems are not taken care of when they arise," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "In some jurisdictions, car owners may even lose their license for certain violations. A few dollars spent on simple vehicle repairs can help avoid trouble with the law."



While a vehicle is in operation, traffic laws require that certain equipment is properly installed and functioning correctly, including brakes, headlights, turn signals, mirrors, windshields and safety belts, to name a few.



The Car Care Council recommends that drivers address these repairs right away as they present public safety concerns that can earn drivers a traffic ticket on top of a repair bill.




  • Non-functioning turn signals and headlights or taillights that are cracked or broken. Most states require vehicles to have functioning turn signals as well as two functioning headlights and taillights. Taillights must illuminate red; if a taillight is cracked, it can give off a white light, which is also typically a traffic violation.

  • Cracked windshield. If a windshield is cracked, discolored or tinted in a way that obstructs vision, drivers may get ticketed and fined. In some states, vehicle modifications, such as tinted windows, are prohibited.

  • License plates are unreadable. If the license plate light is out or if the plate is otherwise unreadable, drivers may be pulled over. In some states this includes clear or tinted plastic license plate covers.

  • Loud exhaust system. A defective exhaust system that is too loud, either because it has been modified or because it needs repairs, can be cause for a ticket. What is considered loud depends on the state.

    I called NC Auto Glass this morning after my driver's door window shattered on my way to work. Every other place I called was completely booked - most places had openings 2 days from now. They were very responsive and worked to fit me in the same day. They arrived promptly and were fast and professional, and even vacuumed up the broken glass from my car! Replacing the entire window was done in less than an hour. I am so appreciative of their service during this stressful event and was thrilled with the result. I highly recommend NC Auto Glass and will be using them for future services!

    This is the second time the awesome folks at NC Auto Glass have worked on my windshield. The first time my windshield was replaced, the second was a chip fix. The level of communication, speediness, ease of working with my insurance, and promptness on the day of the appointment made both experiences a pleasure. I live in an ongoing construction zone, so more glass dings may be in my future, but I definitely know whom to call if and when they happen!
